Target emission probe for suprathermal electrons detection

MARTIN, PIERO;

Abstract

The design and preliminary results of a target emission probe (TEP), applied to the continuous detection of suprathermal electrons in the edge of fusion plasmas, is presented in this paper. This diagnostic, developed for the RFX reversed field pinch experiment, is based on the measurement of the x‐ray emission from a material target, exposed to the edge plasma, due to the bremsstrahlung of the electrons. The diagnostic has been successfully tested in RFX and a clear indication of the presence of a mostly unidirectional fast electron flow in the RFX plasma edge has been found. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
